Perhaps the only thing hotter than rising temps across the U.S. is the topic of artificial intelligence (AI) in entertainment.
Whether or not actual robots (or computer programs) will replace a large swath of those currently employed in the industry remains to be seen, but that’s not stopping some companies from flirting with the edges of what’s possible.
“AI developments represent some pretty interesting opportunities for us,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a Q2 2023 earnings call in May. “In fact, we’re already starting to use AI to create some efficiencies and ultimately to better serve consumers.”
But Disney has remained relatively opaque about its AI probe, other than saying its legal team is looking into it. And while it’s safe to assume that a lawyer examining artificial intelligence at Disney is probably well taken care of, the take-home pay probably pales in comparison.
According to a posting on Netflix’s job page, the FAANG company is a Machine Learning Platform Project Manager out of its Los Gatos, CA headquarters. The role has an option for remote work.
“Machine Learning/Artificial Intelligence is powering innovation in all areas of the business.
